What better way to start the New Year than with nearly GBP 2 million in cash in your back pocket! That’s exactly what happened to Susan C., a player at Platinum Play online casino who headed to one of her favorite games, Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring video slot on December 28th. After a few rounds, the lucky Susan found herself in the bonus round of the game and she hit the massive jackpot after landing the biggest jackpot in the four tiered structure – bagging herself £1.965,956.46 (almost $3 million!)
When Lord of the Rings slot was first launched by Microgaming, it wasn’t considered a progressive slot game and it was only after the casino provider beefed up the game and enhanced its features in 2011, was the game linked to the Mega Moolah jackpot which can also be found in games such as Isis and Summertime.
For players to win one of the four jackpots, they need to be lucky enough to have the bonus round triggered randomly. They are then whisked off to the bonus round where they need to spin a wheel, which will determine which of the four jackpots they have won. In Susan’s case, she won the Mega Jackpot, which is the highest paying jackpot in the Mega Moolah progressive fund.
The Lord of the Rings is one of Microgaming’s most iconic slot games, based on the trilogy of books by JRR Tolkien and later films which were made and produced. The game boasts 243 ways to win and features fantastic rewards, imagery from the original films and a host of other features.
